My recommendation for a new place would be to feel it out first. Itís tempting to just fill with new furniture but as Iíve gotten older Iíve realized you will move stuff around and your tastes may change. Remember those ginormous sectionals from the early 2000s? If
You bought one of those now a days youíd be severally limited. We try to use craigslist, FB etc for furniture. Itís much cheaper. Allows us to try new things etc.

My one new recommendation would be a sofa.
Crate and barrel makes some great sofas that last. Good cushions with timeless designs

It also depends your style and how you use the space we love to entertain and I have to ensure everything has a home. So we look for multi purpose items like ottomans that can store and double as seating etc.
